I am happiest relaxing

After a plan delay, a delay getting our rental car, and a long drive from the airport I didn’t notice much about my aunt’s home when I arrived. I was just ready to take a shower and go to sleep. So, when I got up in the morning and put my feet on the floor, I was surprised at how warm the floor was. For a minute, I thought something was wrong like that there was fire in the basement. I quickly realized it was just her heated floors. I went to the kitchen and noticed that all of the floors were heated as I made my way. My aunt was standing barefoot in the kitchen making coffee and it must have been about 20 degrees outside. Yet, the floors were so warm and comfortable that I wanted to lie down and go back to sleep. I asked her about the heated floor and she said that she had them installed a few years ago. The heating under the floors actually heat the whole house. I was amazed at that. I thought heated floors were something you get in addition to a regular furnace but my aunt said that it worked like a giant heat mat for the whole house. She also explained that there was a thermostat in each room so I could control the temperature in my room as well. I just loved it. My aunt and I did a lot and saw a lot of sites, while I was in town, but I was always happiest just relaxing in her warm house. I didn’t want to leave when it was time for me to head home.
